In 2009, WhatsApp was launched as a mobile status app displaying your contact status. If they do not approve new service terms that are likely to roll out in the coming year, beginning in February 2021, WhatsApp users will lose their access to the app.
From February 8, 2021, WhatsApp will implement new terms of service, and if users do not comply, they will lose access to the instant messaging programme.
In the latest policy update, information about WhatsApp’s service and how the business handles user data will supposedly be presented to users. Also, it will clarify how mobile app development company can manage using Facebook-hosted services.
WhatsApp also announced several new updates. WhatsApp, the messaging site operated by Facebook, is working on adding some recent changes to the current beta version: With a revamped wallpaper gallery, the wallpapers can be personalised per talk.
The latest update of the popular messaging app will include a ‘WhatsApp Doodles’ option for users to download, which will offer a new look to the current background wallpaper used in chats. A new call button works along with this which will tweak the fact that you make video and voice call on the app. The Catalogue shortcut is another key feature that will enable business account holders to have easy access to their portfolio.
Improved Sticker Search:
WhatsApp users will quickly be able to search and find stickers with text or emoji with the latest update or browse through common categories of stickers. The sticker app developers are encouraged, according to a company statement, to tag their stickers with emojis and text in the future. This will help a wider variety of WhatsApp users discover their stickers.
The company’s statement says that Together at Home is one of WhatsApp’s most famous sticker packs. In its animated form, the sticker pack can now be much more expressive and useful.
The ‘Together at Home’ sticker pack is accessible on WhatsApp, with text available in 9 languages, including Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.
Four big changes are seen on WhatsApp wallpapers – personalised chat wallpapers, additional doodle wallpapers, an improved stock wallpaper gallery, and the ability to set different settings for light and dark mode wallpapers.
Custom chat wallpapers make the user chats personal and distinguishable by using a custom wallpaper different chats. WhatsApp claims this will also reduce the chances of sending a message to a wrong chat. Doodle wallpapers are also getting an upgrade. They will now be available in more colours.
As users become very big, an expert says, many don’t want to step out of the free services. With this newer policy, however, many would have to move out of WhatsApp. Last but not least says a cybersecurity professional since WhatsApp declares on its end to end encryption, all WhatsApp messages can be retrieved by the third party.
